John Stossel, the first extropian public figure? It could happen. He has demonstrated a talent for shattering world views. His technique of pretending to take the popular side of an issue and slowly being convinced otherwise by reality and critical thinking is entertaining and effective. Imagine all of the dumbfounded masses after watching
"Greed" (transcript at or
"Consensual Crimes". His biography is at I'm not suggesting that we all send letters or email to him about extropian principles and ideas. I think that would be counter productive. But, some of the more Charismatic extropians with accumulated clout (you know who you are Max, Natasha, Katherine etc.) could collaborate on a way to get a dialogue started. I know this is a little pushy, but lets get this thing out there. Thats when the excitement really starts.
